NOMINATED: Shooting People's 'Film Of The Month'
OFFICIAL SELECTION: Aesthetica Short Film Festival
125,000 men volunteered to fight for RAF Bomber Command during World War II. 55,573 never returned.
From the dusky English coast to the flak filled night skies of war-torn Europe, ‘Lancaster’ tells the story of a young bomber crew as they fly one final daring night raid over occupied France in the face of insurmountable odds.
‘Lancaster’ explores the human, personal experience of the war that raged in the skies during WWII, the reality of the bravery and fear, the indiscriminate nature of combat and the impact on the individual.
From award-winning director Philip Stevens and award-winning producer Tom Walsh, ‘Lancaster’ is a powerful and moving portrayal of the courage and sacrifices of the men who took to the air in the name of duty during the bombing campaigns of the Second World War. Produced by the Urban Apache Films core creative team for Red Dog Film, Polymath Pictures and East Lindsay District Council.
